Perhaps the most famous is Stephen Crane, who grew up in Asbury Park and is best known for The Red Badge of Courage. Also there is Mary Mapes Dodge, who was said to never have been to Europe before writing Hans Brinker, or the Silver Skates. And though the achievement of another resident, Edward Stratemeyer, may not be in the realm of Mr. Crane's, his creations include Nancy Drew, the Bobbsey Twins and the Hardy Boys."
